the moment where it tells you "how good it is to let go"

To experience the deep rewards of this practice, start off on the right foot with expert help from Insight Meditation Society instructors Sharon Salzberg and Joseph Goldstein. They'll help you find the skillful balance of concentration and relaxation that results in a finely attuned state of ease that will stay with you long after you get off the cushion.

Using special meditations and teachings, she shows how to cultivate your own noble heart, one that sheds its armor, and opens fearlessly to both heartache and delight.
"Wonderful, like a personal retreat"
Best-selling author and spiritual guide Eckhart Tolle led a remarkable two-day retreat at Findhorn, Scotland, a community on the leading edge of personal and global transformation. His weekend talks, captured on audio, create a deeply moving experience for listeners. Speaking on the subject of stillness, which he describes as a doorway into the Now and to true personal enlightenment, Tolle shows listeners how to find stillness in the present moment and enter a deeper dimension of peace and fulfillment.
Drawn from a number of Krishnamurti's talks and dialogues, Freedom From the Known explores many of the central themes of his teaching. The chapters include: Learning About Ourselves, Pursuit of Pleasure, Justification and Condemnation, and the Dissipation of Energy.
Pema Chodron is one of today's leading meditation teachers. With more than one million books sold to date, she draws sold out crowds across the U.S. and Canada. On Unconditional Confidence, she offers two accessible sessions to help anyone find courage in times of challenge and change.

"A wonderful, powerful and healing meditation!"
Master entrepreneur, original hip-hop mogul, and New York Times best-selling author Russell Simmons shares the most fundamental key to success - meditation - and guides listeners to use stillness as a powerful tool to access their potential. In the New York Times best-seller Super Rich, Russell Simmons proved that to be rich is more than just having money in the bank - wealth is about balance, joy, and conscientious living. In Success Through Stillness, Simmons shows the connection between inner peace and outward success.
"GREAT BOOK. I REALLY ENJOY ALL OF RUSSELL'S BOOKS."
This is one of a series of six meditation recordings by Glenn Harrold and Ali Calderwood, which are based upon the ancient solfeggio musical scale. Each note in this scale has specific healing properties, and this recording uses the first note, which resonates to a frequency of 396hz. This particular frequency works to release deep rooted feelings of guilt and fear and will also work with other similar emotional patterns, such as shame, regret, self-doubt, and low self-esteem.
"Great Meditation for a Good Nights Sleep"
Everyday life is so frantic and full of troubles that we have largely forgotten how to live a joyful existence. We try so hard to be happy that we often end up missing the most important parts of our lives. In Mindfulness, Oxford professor Mark Williams and award-winning journalist Danny Penman reveal the secrets to living a happier and less anxious, stressful, and exhausting life.
Thousands of years prove it, and Western science backs it: Meditation sharpens focus. Meditation lowers blood pressure, relieves chronic pain, reduces stress. Meditation helps us experience greater calm. Meditation connects us to our inner-most feelings and challenges our habits of self-judgment. Meditation helps protect the brain against aging and improves our capacity for learning new things. Meditation opens the door to real and accessible happiness. There is no better person to show a beginner how to harness the power of meditation than Sharon Salzberg....
"Beautifully written and read by the author."
As anyone who has tried it knows, meditation looks simple but at times it can be difficult. The greatest support you can have on your contemplative path is a trusted teacher like Jack Kornfield, who stands out as one of the most helpful and encouraging Western instructors for newcomers to the art of meditation. With Guided Meditation, this renowned Buddhist teacher brings you six practices that will open the door to the serenity and joy of meditation, and serve as your foundation for years to come.
"This is a great tool"
In this beautiful and lucid guide, Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh offers gentle anecdotes and practical exercises as a means of learning the skills of mindfulness - being awake and fully aware. From washing the dishes to answering the phone to peeling an orange, he reminds us that each moment holds within it an opportunity to work toward greater self-understanding and peacefulness.
"Excellent all around. Quality content and narratio"
Let’s be real for a sec. Most of us don’t have time for an hour of yoga or 30 minutes of meditation every day. We’re overwhelmed as it is. Our spiritual practice shouldn’t add to that. That’s why I’ve handpicked 108 simple techniques to combat our most common problems - stress, burnout, frustration, jealousy, resentment. The stuff we have to deal with on a daily basis. This audiobook is designed so that you can achieve peace and experience miracles now. Inspired by some of the greatest spiritual teachings, Miracles Now uses practical, moment-to-moment tools to help you eliminate blocks and live with more ease.
"Miracles Now Eye Opening"
Why do our negative experiences seem to stay with us so persistently? It is because they are the fuel for what Eckhart Tolle calls the pain-body, an energetic field that actually feeds on toxic thoughts and emotions. Liberation from the pain-body is not about repressing or denying our thoughts. Instead, as Eckhart's teaching partner Kim Eng reveals, we must develop a complete receptiveness to all experience-rejecting nothing, judging nothing, and resisting nothing.
"Easy step into presence"
On this longer 56-minute disc, Dr. Joe walks you through Meditation 1: Changing Two Beliefs and Perceptions. After introducing the open-focus technique, he then moves you into the practice of finding the present moment. When you discover the sweet spot of the present moment and you forget about yourself as the personality you have always been, you have access to other possibilities that already exist in the quantum field.
Your soul signature is your spiritual DNA - it is who you are at your core, the most authentic part of you, your singular contribution to this world. And yet we reject our authentic selves. We allow our soul signature to become blocked by any number of emotional obstacles that life throws in our path: anger, fear, guilt, shame, sadness, despair. Any or all of these feelings overtake us and create a density, a heaviness that doesn’t permit us to embrace who we truly are, deep inside. We are energetic beings, Panache Desai reminds us, and emotions are energy in motion.

What if you turned to meditation for the sheer enjoyment of it? That may sound unlikely, but when we approach the practice with playfulness, receptivity, and excitement, meditation can become one of the most intimate and fulfilling relationships we will ever have. On Beginning Meditation, master teacher Sally Kempton welcomes newcomers to a practice based on embracing the fullness of our experience - and reconnecting with the love, compassion, and wisdom that we are in our essence.
When faced with the injustice and suffering of the world, Noah Levine rebelled by getting angry-even though his bitterness almost led to his self-destruction through drugs and violence. What changed? "I discovered the greatest rebellion of all is an inner revolution fueled not by rage", says Levine, "but by deep and pervading kindness." With Kind Awareness, Levine shares foundational Buddhist insights and practices for uncovering our true nature and our innate potential for wisdom and compassion.
We live in a very chaotic society and all of us have experienced stress at one time or another.
